“My husband and I have a weekly class with Claire in the comfort of our own home.  My husband wants to improve strength and flexibility for his climbing and I enjoy the exercise and the mental benefit of yoga.  Claire manages to balance to two goals with a personalised flow.  Claire is a very experienced teacher who knows when to push us to take our yoga practice to a deeper level and when to give us more space to enjoy the meditative elements of the practice.  We both very much look forward to the session.”

Lucy Pert – Director of litigation funding.  Harbour 

“ I have had 1-2-1 yoga sessions with Claire since 2010. Claire knows so much about how the body works and what it needs and how yoga can help it to restore when necessary. Claire helps me look after my mental health, emotional stability and my physical body. Claire has helped me change my body shape into what feels right for me and give me the tools I need every day to enjoy and deal with life. Claire brilliantly understands how sometimes I need asanas to challenge me and show that I am progressing as well as an understanding that sometimes I need to find a way to use my yoga to heal an area that doesn’t feel right.  And we do both, very often in the same session. Claire’s intuition, expertise, patience and openness has ensured that my practice is sustained, hugely enjoyable and something I look forward to three times a week. Thank you Claire!”

” I have found the meditation classes very calming. We are all really bad about taking time out of our busy schedules to focus on clearing out our minds in order to relax. Meditation has given me some keys skills to be able to do this.”

Kirsty Allen – Solicitor Kingsley Napley

” I really enjoy Claire’s yoga classes and definitely feel it is beneficial to my health and wellbeing.  I have found the yoga classes have really made me aware of my body and how important it is to stay fit and flexible.  When I attend a class I feel calm and invigorated afterwards.  I would highly recommend attending one of Claire’s yoga classes.”

Bethan Owen – Partner (Solicitor) Kingsley Napley

“I’ve greatly enjoyed learning to be more bendy than ever before with the fantastic Claire Smith, who has done her best to encourage and extend me, while minimising laughing at both my ineptitude and poor jokes. Highly recommended. It’s relaxing, frustrating, and rewarding in equal measure.”

Matt Collins – Executive Director JPM Chase

” For me Dru meditation is a perfect way to end a busy day at work and the classes leave me feeling peaceful and happy. After a few weeks practice it’s already becoming easier to switch off and just be still for those few minutes. Afterwards I sleep really well and find it much easier to stay calm and concentrate the next day.

It helps that Claire has a lovely teaching style and the way she gently guides us through each step, with clear explanations and demonstrations, makes it easy to follow along in class and repeat the practice on my own at home.

Claire Fox –  Legal Information Professional

“The yoga practice which I have been doing for the past few months has helped with my flexibility and balance as well being an excellent way to stretch fully, and strengthen muscles. The small group teaching enables Claire to observe one carefully, provide the necessary props and support to achieve the maximum results. At the beginning of a session she checks out any problem areas to take them into account during the session.  It is an enjoyable and beneficial period in the week.

Jane R Goodman – Retired

“We are fortunate to have Claire come into our office and deliver two corporate yoga classes each week.  Everyone in the office who participates comes away feeling revived after one of Claire’s classes.  Not only is it a brilliant way to de-stress whilst keeping fit, Claire is excellent at reading the room and catering to all of our individual needs at the same time.  Highly recommended.

Steph McTighe – Associate Quinn Emanuel
